Welcome[edit]

Please take a few moments to read our Criteria for inclusion.

Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:


I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk (discussion) and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~, which automatically produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the beer parlour or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Versageek 05:16, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Format[edit]

Please take the time to look over standard formatting conventions on WT:ELE. For example, only a language name should ever appear as a level-2 section header. All all headers should be level-3 or deeper. This is very different from conventions used on Wikipedia. --EncycloPetey 05:49, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Wizzrobe[edit]

See Special:Log/delete for reasons that people have deleted the entry. --EncycloPetey 06:06, 28 December 2006 (UTC)


This is the name of a fictional/game character which is not used attributivly outside of the game - thus it fails to meet our Criteria for Inclusion. Please do not reenter the term. --Versageek 06:06, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

This does not meet WT:CFI, it has been deleted. Note that "hiding" entries on a user sub-page to try to get them indexed by a search engine isn't acceptable either. Robert Ullmann 06:17, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Sorry to sound so discouraging. There is an article at w:Wizzrobe where it does meet the criteria. Robert Ullmann 06:25, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
That's why I thought if wikipedia has a article about something, you could write a simple definition here on wiktionary.com. Wiki Kong 06:41, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, but that's not how it works. There are plenty of items that have articles on Wikipedia but will never have an entry in Wiktionary, likewise there are plenty of words defined in Wiktionary that will never have articles on Wikipedia. The criteria for inclusion in ach project are very different. --EncycloPetey 06:46, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
(edit conflict) As you can see, it doesn't quite work that way: there are lots of proper names, people, places, etc that have WP entries, but aren't dictionary entries. And the other way around: lots of very interesting words that don't rate a WP entry. Robert Ullmann 06:46, 28 December 2006 (UTC)


No, you really can't squirrel away definitions on user subpages to evade CFI. And note that re-creating deleted pages is cause for an immediate block. (which I haven't done ;-) This is WP material, and well-covered there. Robert Ullmann 06:28, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Well, if having the word here annoys you, I won't repost it. Wiki Kong 06:41, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

No redirects[edit]

do not enter redirects. --Connel MacKenzie 00:30, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Testing[edit]

If you want to try testing please use the sand pit! Do not clutter the main namespace with trash entries.--Williamsayers79 18:22, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
